The idea of doing all of this
before congress only, is not a
practical move for all the socie-
ties but the idea is to get down
and see that the above are all
continually provided for regard-
less of congress.

ALLEN, S. D. Nov. 5th 1909.
To the readers of the Eyanpaha.
Since,, we had no congress
this summer, I wish to suggest
that every local society should
make their annual report to their
respective missionaries, showing
how much money they have giv-
en to our dear Bishop, and how
much money is given to hi a ', to
distribute among his missionar-
ies for the benefit of the cate-
chists on the various agencies,
i A full report should be made
to show how each local meeting
is standing; how much money
has been deposited with each
Treasurer of each agency, as was
adopted at the last Congress held
at Rosebud Agency, S. Dak.
. Farther, I. wish to say, that we
should not only wait for congress
to have the result of our societies
knowmbutl think this can be
made known through our mis-
sionaries as well, for the reason
that- the Bishop and catechists
has to be provided for whether
we have a congress or not.
Therefore, each society should
get up and see what^they can do

quaint little serman that had
been delivered so innocently and
A BOY'S DECISION.
A QUAINT SERMON.
A GENTLEMAN was riding
slowly along the dusty road, look-
ing in all directions for a stream,
or even a house, where he might
refresh his tired, thirsty horse
with a draught of water. While
he was thinking and wondering
he turned, an abrupt bend in the
the road, and saw before him a
comfortable farm-house; and at
the same time a boy ten or twelve
years old came out into the road
with a small pail and stood di-
rectly before him.
"What do you wish my boy?"
said the gentleman, stopping his
"Would your horse like a drink,
sir?" said the boy respectfully.
"Indeed he would; and I was
wondering where I could obtain
The gentleman thought little
of it, supposing, of course- the
boy earned a few pennies in this
manner; and therefore, he offered
him a bit of silver, and was aston-
ished to see him refuse it.
"I would like you to take it"
he said, looking earnestly at the
child and observing for the first
time that he limped slightly.
"Indeed, sir, I don't want it.
It is little enough I can do for
myself or anyone. I am lame
and my back is bad sir; and
mother says, no matter how small :
a favor may seem, if it is all we
are capable of, God loves it as
much as he does a large favor.
And thisjs the most I can do for
others. You see, sir, the distance
from Painsville is eight miles to
this spot, and I happen to know
there is no stream crossing the '
road that distance; and so, sir, (
almost everyone passing here:
from that place is sure to have a '
The gentleman looked down
into the gray eyes that were
kindling and glowing with the
thought of doing good to others;
Many years ago, Mr. Hall, an
English gentleman visited Ire-
land for the purpose of taking
sketches of its most beautiful
scenery, to be used in all illus-
trated work of Ireland, which
has since been published.
On one occasion, when about to
spend a day in the neighborhood
of Lake Killarney,he met a bright
young Irish lad, who offered his
service as guide through the
A bargain was made with him,
and the party went off. The lad
proved himself well acquainted
with all the places of interest in
the neigborhood and had plenty
of stories to tell about them. He
did his work well, and to the en-
tire satisfaction of the visitors.
On their return to the starting
point, Mr. Hall took a flask of
whiskey from his pocket, and
drank some. Then he handed it
to the boy, and asked him to help
himself. To his surprise the of-
fer was firmly, but politely de-
Mr. Hall thought this very
strange. To find an Irish boy
who. would not touch or taste
whikey was stranger to him than
anything he had seen that day.
He could not understand it; and
he resolved to try the strength
of the boy's temperance princi-
ples. He offered first a shilling,
then a half crown, and then five
shillings if he would taste that
whiskey. But the bpy was firm.
A real manly heart was beating
under his ragget jacket. Mr,
Hall determined to try him fur-
ther, so he offered the boy a
golden half sovereign if he would
take a drink of whiskey. That
was a coin seldom seen by lads
of this class in those parts.
Straightening himslf up, with a
look of indignation on his face,
the boy pulled out a temperance
medal from his inner poket of his
jacket, and holding it bravely up
said: "This was my father's
medal. For years he was intem-
perate. All his wages were spent
in drink. It almost broke my
mother's heart; and what a hard
time she had to keep the children
from starving. At last my father
took a stand. He signed the
pledge and wore this medal as
long as he lived. On his deathbed
he gave it to me. I promised him
that I would never drink intoxi-
cating liquor, and now, sir, for
all the money your honor may
be worth a hundred times over,
I would not brake that promise."
That boy's dicision about drink
was noble. Yes, — and it did good,
too. As Mr. Hall stood there,
astonished, he screwed the top
unto his flask, and flung it into
the water of the lake near which
Then he turned to the lad and
shook him warmly by the hand,
saying as he did so: —
"My boy, that's the best tem-
perance lecture I ever heard. I
thank you for it. And now, by
the help of God, I will never
drink another drink of intoxicat-
ing liquor while I live."
This incedent shows that it
does not follow that a person
must become a drunkard because
his father or mother happened
to be addicted to drink. If we
ask God's assistance we can re-
sist the worsttemptations. From
this it can be easily seen that the
idea of heredity is all stuff and
nonsense. We know many per-
sons whose parents were de-
praved, and yet who were them-
selves model citizens and good
Catholics, because they relied
upon the aid which the Almighty
God gave them, and because they
did not make light of prayer.
A HIGH-SOULED YOUTH.
HERE is a very interesting
anecdote of the great Bonaparte
and a boy whom he selected as a
page because of his handsome
appearance and also because of
his sterling and honest charac-
teristics. We remark, in ad-
vance, that, without making de-
votion a specialty, Napoleon I,
had nevertheless very clear ideas
on religious matters, which ideas
were implanted in his mind dur-
ing his early years. One day,
at the period of his highest pros-
perity, this monorch went to the
theatre attended by a young
page for whom he had a lively
affection, and whom he was de-
sirous of attaching to his person.
The emperor, however, paid but
little atention to the drama and
spent his time in examining the
assistants. The conduct of his
young attendant seemed greatly
to astonish him; this young man
appeared to be rapt in thought
and to take very little interest
in 'the representations. Besides,
obstinately kept his hand hidden
under a fur overcoat spread
across his knees.
Suddenly Napoloon. leaving his
seat bent over the young duke's
shoulder and, thrusting his hand
into his overcoat, brought forth
a pair of beads. At that period,
and with the, majority of those
present, the beads were not in
great honorv and the blushing
page stood waiting a seyere re-
premand. ' -'Ah, Augustus, I
caught you!" said Napoleon.
"Well,'' continued he, "I am
proud of you; you are above the
nonsense of the theatre; you are
a noble youth, and you will one
day be a man. Continue," said
he, returning the beads, "I will
trouble you no more." Those who
witnessed the scene and heard
the words of the monarch dared
not laugh at the devotion of the
page. He who thus said his
beads at the theatre did indeed
become a man: he died Cardinal
Archbishop of Besacon, leaving
numberless proofs of eminent
The Patient mule.
